America's police will be safer when they admit they have a problem, Pres. Obama declared on Sunday at a bilateral event with the prime minister of Spain in Madrid.

Fielding a question on Sunday, July 10, about the violence against police in Dallas, Texas last week, which left five officers dead, Obama said police officers will be safer once they acknowledge their failures:

"There are legitimate issues that have been raised, and there’s data and evidence to back up the concerns that are being expressed by these protesters. 

"And if police organizations and departments acknowledge that there’s a problem and there’s an issue, then that, too, is going to contribute to real solutions.  And, as I said yesterday, that is what’s going to ultimately help make the job of being a cop a lot saferIt is in the interest of police officers that their communities trust them and that the kind of rancor and suspicion that exists right now is alleviated."
